LibriVox recording of Daniel Deronda, by George Eliot. Read by Becky Miller.
In this enduring Victorian classic written in 1876, two stories weave in and out of each other: The first is about Gwendolen, one of Eliot's finest creations, who grows from a self-centered young beauty to a thoughtful adult with an expanded vision of the world around her. The second is about Daniel Deronda, adopted son of an aristocratic Englishman who becomes fascinated with Jewish traditions when he meets an ailing Jewish philosopher named Mordecai and his sensitive sister, Mirah.

A book of this length read by a single person would ordinarily be a risky proposition, but Becky Miller does an outstanding job throughout. It's as close to perfect as you're likely to find in the Librivox catalog!
